What You Need to Know

Chisenhall Messes With Texas

by Chris Mosch


The Monday Takeaway
Lonnie Chisenhall has been teasing a breakout, as he entered Monday’s contest with a .365/.413/.538 slash line in 176 plate appearances this season. But nobody could have expected the show the former first-round pick put on during Cleveland’s 17-7 blowout of the Rangers. When the Indians walked off the field, Chisenhall had accomplished a stat line that no other player in history had ever recorded.

Chisenhall started off his historic night by singling home the second run of the game off Nick Martinez as part of a three-run first inning. In his second trip to the plate, the Cleveland third sacker sat back on a 1-1 changeup at the knees from Martinez, hooking it just inside the right-field foul pole.

The two-run blast by Chisenhall put the Indians up 8-1, and the visitors had put double-digits on the scoreboard by the time Chisenhall came to bat for the third time. Scott Baker was in for mop-up duty and surrendered Chisenhall’s second home run of the night, this one just beyond the reach of a leaping Daniel Robertson.

It wasn't stated implicitly here, but Kratz came in to run for Navarro in the bottom of the 9th after the latter walked. So - it was Kratz who moved up to second on the Reyes single instead of Navarro.

"the last team to lead baseball in True Average and Defensive Efficiency—the 2004 Cardinals—went on to win the World Series."

I think there are quite a few people in Boston who would not agree with that characterization of the 2004 World Series...

If you listen to Al Hrabosky's Cardinals broadcasts he still thinks the Cardinals would have swept if they had won game one.

Travis Wood pitches left-handed, bats right-handed.

I was *at* the 1986 Mets-Reds game that's namechecked in the Astros-Diamondbacks segment of the article. Six ejections, bench-clearing brawl, Dave Parker dropping what should habe been the game-ending final out, Gary Carter at 3B, and the McDowell-Orosco switcheroo. Still the weirdest game I've ever seen, and I was there!

It should also be noted about that Mets-Reds game that it wasn't just switching between RF and the mound. Orosco faced lefties and McDowell would move from the mound to LF; when McDowell came back in, Orosco would go to RF. Mookie Wilson played the opposite corner from the Orosco/McDowell combo.
